Abstract: Recent scholarship on operational codes and foreign policy behavior suggests links between attribution-based belief patterns and approaches to strategic interaction. These results have implications for both the analysis of dyadic bargaining situations and the prospects for cooperation and conflict in a community of agents defined in part by their beliefs about the political universe and optimal strategies to cope in this environment. We explore the twelve possible two-player games suggested by the subjective games embedded within an expanded version of the Holsti belief system typology and identify myopic (Nash) and nonmyopic (TOM) equilibria. Then we model the interactions in this community among selected dyads with homogeneous or heterogeneous beliefs.
